In this tutorial, we’re going to cover how to connect to a spreadsheet hosted on Google, display that information inside a React application, and deploy it to Netlify.

Skip to “The Setup” if you don’t care where the data will be coming from or why I chose to build this. I won’t be mad, I promise.

Right now the final result looks like this, but I’ll be adding more features to it shortly.

The Why

It’s been a long time coming. Like long… and annoying… and frustrating… but we made it happen! It might be a long read, a lot of it will be code, I wanted to put everything here to serve as a one-stop-shop for anyone who wants to achieve the above.

Made with Stencil

I’ve been developing with Meteor for over 2 years now and it’s still my go-to choice for a project/app of any sorts. I’ve built a Slack app with Meteor (which I have now taken down for the time being cause it was on Modulus and I haven’t had time to transfer…


Or how Ruutly came to life

TL;DR; Meteor, after 2 years of using it, is still my go-to. React is awesome.

Circa August 2016. Looking back on it now, I realize it wasn’t that long ago, but the past 5 weeks felt dreadful and rewarding at the same time. Staying at the office until 2 AM on a Saturday night seems normal at this point (and waking up at 8 to be back here the next day). This is a story of how Ruutly came to exist to change the way we see job ads.

If you’re here just for the tech, you can skip down.

The prequel


“Join [us] on a road to more success.” — DJ Khaled

We’ve all been there. No matter what you’re doing with your life right now, I can bet you’ve worked at a coffee shop, or a clothing store, or at a restaurant. Whether it was to get some extra cash when you were a rowdy teenager, or to help you pay for school, we have all taken some sort of an entry-level occupation somewhere at some point in our lives.

For me, it was retail. I worked at a shoe store for 3 years of my life, throughout high school and in the beginning of university. For me it was to…


Me “passing” my knowledge down to you, duh…

3 years ago I was in first year at University of Toronto studying Computer Science. This year I would have been graduating but after I finished that year, I decided to stop taking courses and put that part of my life on pause.

Today I am a CTO at an awesome startup, writing code every day and I love it. I am writing this because I want to share how I learned to develop using Meteor so that if you are in the same place as where I was 2 years ago, at least you have something to start with.

In my previous article I talked about the new face of Raise Your Flag. I mostly covered the new redesign as well as performance improvement when using React and CDN with a Meteor application.

In this article I will talk about how we set up our Nginx server for optimal SSL, redirects and having a Ghost blog from a different server point to `/blog`. Also I will touch on setting up SEO with React and Meteor to get the content to show up nicely when you share it on social media.

SEO Optimization in React

Our platform has a lot of content we want…


At the end of December 2015 I decided that Raise Your Flag needed a facelift. And I am not just talking about a few cooler styles, I am talking about a full update both on the front-end and on the back-end.

Raise Your Flag is awesome careers for people without a diploma, companies that hire them and skills that are necessary to be a millennial that can prove that they are worthy of a shot in the employment world.

For the sake of this article and to put things in perspective, I came on board in June 2015 and built…


2015 was an amazing year

From spending a month in San Francisco to becoming a co-founder of an awesome startup to traveling to China and trying Bill Clinton’s favourite beer

I wanted to start the new year with pretty much my first ever entry and see where this can go. Mind you, English isn’t my first language so don’t go too crazy on my grammar mistakes and proper wording (mostly directed to my girlfriend Ella, love you!).

San Fransisco

In the beginning of last year I got a pleasure to go and stay with my brother, Yuriy Dybskiy, and see what the Valley is all about.
